Are you familiar with Kirkland Air Force Base? My uncle is because he was stationed in Albuquerque, New Mexico once upon a time.

Albuquerque is a very modern city, but at the same time, it has plenty of history for you to explore. Some of that history is made available to you by way of attractions you can visit of course. There is the Sandia Peak Tramway, Old Town Albuquerque, the Jemez State Monument, Central Avenue and much more. Would you like to pay a visit to Walter White’s house? You know what that means, right?
It’s the house from the set of the television series Breaking Bad. There are some great theaters to stop by as well, such as Max’s Magic Theater and the Vortex Theater. One of the unique places that stood out to me that sounds really cool is the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center. It seems like it would be a very interesting attraction and piece of Albuquerque history, and I would think the gift shop would be a really neat place to buy souvenirs, too.
Did you know there is a national museum there that focuses on nuclear science? It’s the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History. Then there is the San Felipe de Neri Church and La Luz Trail. You’re also going to run into many other museums along the way, but this next one takes the prize. If you thought the nuclear science museum was something, check out the name of this next attraction. It’s called the American International Rattlesnake Museum.
Stop by the Rio Grande River, gaze up at the Sandia Mountains, take pictures of the Petroglyph National Monument and much more. If this is going to be your first time visiting Albuquerque, New Mexico, you want to check out what the city is known for. It should be quite obvious Albuquerque is definitely known for its unique museums for one thing. Albuquerque New Mexico offers up all kinds of great experiences that you really can’t find elsewhere in the states.
